For the third year in a row I started posting my poems on an April poetry blog. I find inspiration in everything and the things I write are very eclectic. Some of them are also quite erotic, which did not seem to bother anyone in previous years. I am a self-published author and though I have not yet managed to sell many books, I consider that to be quite an achievement anyway. So, this year’s poems went down fabulously – I got complemented by the lady who runs the blog, who is also a published poet with a fine arts degree. It was flattering! Even more than that, I impressed quite a few poets who wrote very positive comments about my poems. Continue reading
These urinals are a common sight in Amsterdam and nobody thinks about them twice. They are of course biased towards women, but I am trying to make a different point. The point is about the mores of different peoples. It is very unlikely that this kind of freedom will be available in the United States in the near and for some states perhaps very distant future. I consider urinals to be a symbol of a male chauvinistically dominated society. But again, let’s just skip over that and get to the point.
The point really is about toilets in public places and the big to-do about transgender people. It is ridiculous to see Obama decree a set of guidelines about it and Trump threating to dismantle them. Continue reading
From Dusk Till Dawn is a funny Quentin Tarantino, Roberto Rodriguez collaboration. Sometime at the beginning of the second half (Rodriguez’s piece) Cheech Marin has a very funny monologue in which he is hawking pussy. Check it out here: Continue reading
I just read some older feminist crap about make-up, clothing and such stuff. I’ve been having this conversation with a lot of women, female friends and wives for the past five decades. I think they still refuse to understand my point. The feminists claim that it is some kind of patriarchal, antiquated custom that forces them to try and look attractive by wearing expensive clothing, getting expensive hair-do’s and slapping expensive make-up on their faces. My argument was always that even though we think that is kind of nice, those are not really that important to men. Yes I realize it is Katy Perry and wow, she’s got great knockers. However, I’m not sure she is wearing make-up, but I guess it would yes.
Nobody ever went broke underestimating the stupidity of the American people. This phrase is largely attributed to H.L. Mencken, but disputed by some. So, I do not claim to be a great political analyst. I just wonder at the stupidity of Americans. The first Hillary-Trump debate took place two days ago and my TV is still full of fallout from that event. I actually did watch it and there are a lot of things that I could talk about, but I will limit myself to two main points:
I wish I could explain to these men (and their governments) what is wrong with this picture. But then, if they had the mental capacity to understand it, I wouldn’t need to, would I? Continue reading
